09 Aug Speaker Series
During UBC Social Enterprise Club’s Speaker Series in mid January, speakers from both Vancity and Patagonia came out to portray two very different businesses which are both creating positive impact and show students the wide range of fields that they can be involved in while creating change. The attendees learned how these social enterprises came to be and how they run day-to-day, as well as how the students themselves can become engaged in the social innovation space. The event aimed to give students from different faculties the opportunity of experiencing the field from different perspectives and understand how social entrepreneurship can be implemented into any career. The students also had the opportunity to network not only with the professionals representing the companies but also students from different faculties with the similar ideas and aspirations to create impact.
